Run A Simple Batch Script failure

We are trying to get a simple batch script to run via KACE and have issues.  It runs locally without issue.  This is the script:

move "c:\logstash-cbnode\deflate\deflatriots.txt" "c:\logstash-cbnode\deflate\patriots.txt"

We have it checked to run as local system.  The script name is a *.bat form.  We are choosing the Windows OS.  Any idea in what we did wrong here?

  • Forgive me but how do you move one .txt file into another .txt file? - 786_ak 6 years ago
  • That is the command they are using. It does appear to work properly in a command prompt. - revsmitty 6 years ago
    • have you tried ren (rename) instead of move. ren "c:\logstash-cbnode\deflate\deflatriots.txt" patriots.txt - SMal.tmcc 6 years ago
  • I agree with the this comment above. The Linux/Unix command, mv, are used to rename files but the command, move, does not do the same thing in Windows. - apetersen478 5 years ago
  • That is beside the point guys. This is an example that works fine in a DOS prompt. If anyone has any insight on why KACE can't run a batch file. I would appreciate it. As I stated, the command works fine locally in a command shell. - revsmitty 5 years ago
